Remembering Maddie

Just wanted to let you know my beloved 11 year old golden Maddie passed away on the very day that you called me last week.
She began bleeding internally and it could not be stopped.  Maddie was quite a local celebrity; she read with the children at the local library, performed in the Broadway play “Annie” and taught the children at the Firehouses on how to stop, drop and roll and yes she was recognized as the golden that could count…..and indeed she could…..she was loved by so many.  She had earned all of her agility/obedience/rally titles……and had just begun Barn Hunt receiving her first title two weeks prior.
I just wanted you to know how really special Maddie was.   I attached a couple of pictures from our most recent vacation.
If the next golden you pick out for me is only half of what she was I will be so blessed.
